I have a sub a playbar and two play fives. I set them up as a Surround Group.
When I play music, Do the 2 play fives act as a stereo pair?

If you set the surrounds to "Full" mode for music in the Settings, you will get full stereo out of the surrounds for music. The Playbar will still be playing, but the surrounds will now be at full volume instead of just ambient filler.

A little dated reply, but if you put the surrounds in full mode do you need to redo the trueplay process?
Not sure, to be honest, but if so, there would be an indicator (red dot) next to the room name indicating the need. It’s not an onerous process, although I guess it could be if you needed to borrow a person with an iOS device.

hello there, I have been chasing down similar threads but haven’t found an answer yet.

When you switch to full music mode, can the two Play Ones output stereo without activating the Beam? in other words how do you disassociate Beam from Surrounds  in full music mode? The reason being is that my TV and Beam are hidden in a cabinet went not used.

To put it simply,  how do you get the Beam not to play in full music mode? Is the easiest work around to just keep the Beam turned off ?

 

Thanks for your help!

No. The Beam will always play in this situation. You can, however, adjust the volume of the surround speakers in the extended room settings.

This can’t be done. They’re either part of the “room”, or their not, you can’t run it both ways simultaneously.

If you turn off the Beam, there will be no device sending the music to your surround speakers. The Beam is the source of that signal.
